Only the customer's Account Number will be accepted as payment reference.
    8. Payment Irregularities and Service Suspension: Please be advised that any discrepancies in payments, including but not limited to unpaid debit orders or overdue invoices, may necessitate the immediate suspension of services.

An Admin Fee of R150 will be applicable for any unpaid Debit Orders due to “Insufficient Funds”.

Late payment/Admin Fees will be calculated on a sliding scale based on the number of incidents of non-payment on the Customer's payment record. Non-payment of Late payment/Admin Fees will be considered non-payment and will be subject to the same terms. Once levied, Late payment/Admin Fees are not recoverable or reversible, regardless of whether payments are made within the prescribed period. Late payment/Admin fees will be applicable to all invoices not paid by the Due date indicated on the Invoice and at the sole discretion of C-Way Computers's account department.

    14. C-WAY COMPUTERS reserves the right to terminate services where a customer has shown a repeated disregard for payment terms and consistently fails to make regular scheduled payments on time and using approved payment methods. The conditions of termination will be based on guidelines determined at C-WAY COMPUTERS’ discretion and may vary. The means and terms of termination will be determined at C-WAY COMPUTERS’ discretion.

    16. To the fullest extent permitted by law, all amounts due and payable, in terms of the Agreement, shall be paid free of exchange, and without deduction or set-off, and shall be paid by way of a direct debit order in favour of C-WAY COMPUTERS (drawn against an existing banking account nominated by the Subscriber), or in such other manner as C-WAY COMPUTERS may from time to time determine. Should a debit order returned multiple times unpaid (determined by the Bank), the existing Bank Mandate will be rendered invalid. In this case the customer will have to complete a new bank mandate and supply new banking details to continue using Debit Order as a payment method.
    17. The Subscriber agrees that C-WAY COMPUTERS will be entitled and authorised to draw all amounts payable in terms of the Agreement from the account specified by the Subscriber (or any other bank or branch to which it may be transferred).

Furthermore, the debit order authorisation will be collected at the agreed date every month as selected by the Subscriber on the Application form and Bank Mandate. This will continue each subsequent month, to collect any amounts due. The payment method may not be changed unless C-Way has been notified with a one calendar month notice. Please note that any other method of payment done by the customer will by no means automatically stop the debit order and will still continue to be loaded as per the Bank Mandate agreement. This is because debit order batches are loaded two weeks in advance before the debit order date. The customer will still be responsible for any debit order return fees if proper notification of payment method was not requested to us by the subscriber.
    19. The interest will be calculated from the due date of payment to the date of actual payment, both days inclusive, and will be compounded monthly in arrears. The Customer agrees and undertakes to pay the interest.
    20. The Subscriber agrees to sign all such forms and to do all such things as may be necessary to give effect to the debit order as contemplated in clause 8.18 above or otherwise.

  17. Costs
  18. The Client shall on demand pay all expenses actually incurred by C-WAY COMPUTERS either on behalf of the client or as a result of the client’s non-compliance with any provisions of this contract, including tracing costs, all legal costs calculated on the scale as between attorney and its own client on the wider basis.

  19. Suspension/Disconnection/Re-Connection
    1. Reconnection of Services may be subject to a waiting period of up to 48 hours, at C-WAY COMPUTERS’ discretion, regardless of when payment is received or cleared. Reconnection is subject to a reasonable connection fee.
    2. C-Way Computes may without notice suspend the service and/or disconnect the subscriber from the network during the period of a technical failure or modification of the network; or if the client commits a breach of any terms of this Agreement, including but not limited to the monthly prepaid obligation, or if the client does or omits to do anything which in the reasonable opinion of C-WAY COMPUTERS, jeopardises or impairs the quality of the network. If such is occasioned by an act of omission of the Client or related Subscribers, the Network Operator shall have the right to levy a reconnection charge. This charge at time of this agreement is R150 per reconnection. Reconnection fee applies to all Customers.

  20. Connection Faults, connection quality and repairs
    C-WAY COMPUTERS will be entitled to assume that the wireless link or fibre link of a Customer is in good working order until such time as the Customer advises C-WAY COMPUTERS’ support or office of any problems, service breaks, or poor quality of the service. Any faults or service interruption or lack in service quality, should be reported via one of the channels available on C-WAY COMPUTERS website, the mobile App or by contacting support during limited support hours services. We do not offer 24/7 support. During office hours the branch office of C-WAY COMPUTERS should be contacted directly to report any faults. The provider will attend to faults reported by the Customer during office hours and the relevant party will apply its reasonable endeavours to have the service restored in the shortest possible time after hours. The rendering of Internet services will always be on a “best effort” basis and many factors may contribute to sporadic degrade in the quality of internet services that are not necessarily under our control. If the Provider determines that the reported fault was caused by the Customer, the Customer shall be liable for payment of the relevant call-out charge as stipulated by the Provider from time to time. The absolute preferred method to get support is through the C-Way Support Ticket system which the details are contained on our website, https://www.c-way.co.za/support.

    C-Way operates and maintain the C-Way Network infrastructure. We want to advise Customers that due to the nature of the Telecommunication industry, the Internet that the end user receives depends on many third-party providers who provide services separate but interrelated to one another and to C-Way. The cooperation and services of all these providers as a whole, makes the internet possible. Customers accept and acknowledge this fact. C-Way will always use its best endeavours to ensure services are operational at all times but cannot warrant a 24-hour, 7-day a week service without interruption. Fibre faults is not the responsibility of C-Way. The last mile Fibre suppliers are responsible for their own infrastructure maintenance and repairs. For this reason, C-Way will not be liable, nor will we reimburse the Customer for any Fees paid or costs incurred by the Customer for Services which has been interrupted, or was non-operational for any period of time. Kindly note, the "I pay you, so you should fix it" will unfortunately not be a realistic expression of facts and will also not be possible. C-Way will however always where at all possible, notify customers in advance or as soon as we became aware of a fault or interruption in the service we provide. Because of the many third parties involved, the supply of internet services will always be on a "best effort" basis.

  21. Upgrades, Downgrades
    1. Because C-WAY COMPUTERS render a pre-paid service, and such buy pre-paid services from upstream providers, downgrade of Line Speeds must be accompanied by a full calender month notification.
